Summary: >When I first read about the 4500, I was really excited about some of the features advertised,especially the macro feature.(I am a tattoo artist, and this feature helps with documenting my work)Unfortunately,the camera is not really living up to my high expectations; >It's macro feature never seems to capture a clear photo.(either blurry ,too dark,or the flash washes the image out.) >It's auto focus doesn't do much better.
Summary: The shutter lag is too great for me to efficiently use this camera. Nikon support's solution is to prefocus, by pressing the shutter release button half way. I found this to be inadequate, as it means I can't take any spontaneous photos (I tried, the object is always out of the frame).
